Full-Day Kayak Adventure in the Everglades

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Everglades kayaking and slogging adventure at it's best! Enjoy an eco-tour in the Everglades and experience nature in the best way possible.
  • Explore the Florida Everglades by kayak and foot with a guide
  • Kayak through mangrove forests and past alligators and crocodiles
  • See marine life, such as sharks, manatees, and dolphins, in Florida Bay
  • No extra equipment needed: kayak, life jacket, and guide included
What to Expect
Meet up with your group at Robert is Here Fruit Stand and Farm at noon, bringing any food or drink you’d like to put in the provided coolers.

After a brief orientation, you set out through the mangrove forest ecosystem to see the flora and fauna of the area. Take part in several slogs—walking in water—throughout the day, venturing into alligator holes and cypress domes. Observe wildlife, such as alligators, birds, orchids and more in their natural environments.

Gently row your kayak into the salty waters of Florida Bay to explore the variety of marine life in this area. Be on the lookout for manatees, sharks, dolphins, and sawfish. Depending on the season and tour, your guide may take you on a night walk to explore the night creatures of the Everglades with a flashlight.
